As the sun rises and brightens the sky, thoughts turn to the arrival of summer visitors. Still a ways off, but there is plenty of station prep and cleaning to be done in the meantime. IceCube’s winterovers joined the South Pole Deep Clean team to get things started, and last week they got the conference rooms, music room, and quiet reading room all sparkling clean. They also took some outdoor photographs of the IceCube Lab, from a trip out there, and some other structures now becoming visible again in daylight. Indoors, the proud puzzle team stood for a group photo around their completed masterpiece.
